I'm going to AGU, the big geophysics conference, at Moscone Convention Center all next week. Hopping on a plane tomorrow...

If you do wind up using him, just be sure to clean him off before shipping him back, eh? And no permanent marks, either. He hates those.

Enjoy the conference. Many friends of mine will be there (and I wish I were there, too). I will be giving final exams to my students next week, instead...

Just in time for me to leave for Morocco. Unless you're free for dinner tomorrow (Friday)?

There's dinner happening at Cafe Colucci, the Ethiopian place over in the East Bay somewhere. Join us! Christy has details.

I'll wave to you from Boston.

(How many days? I think this trip to Boston is the least-packed I've been on a business trip in ages.)

Hey, they had one of those in New Orleans many many moons ago (you probably weren't born yet) and I worked it as a volunteer. Have a good time!



(since the one called Katrina, I overpack without apology - I figure this way, I have clean clothes when I get home and am prepared to move in wherever I am should a natural disaster hit while away.)

Dude, I am not that much younger than you.

It's mostly the having the drag the suitcase around town that I'm moaning at myself about...

I forewent them for videos on my laptop to watch, instead, since I was bringing it anyway. I figure I can always go buy a book if I want one...

I *always* regret not bringing several books. I often can't find a decent bookstore in my travels and somehow always finish at least one book.

And you're not overpacked until you have at least two pairs of underwear per day. Or three, if you go to the gym.

Well, that's what I did for Thanksgiving, anyhow.
